"Contemporary Class Piano, ninth edition, enables class piano students to master the full range of skills needed to succeed in the two-semester class piano course. It provides all the tools needed for mastery, including a wide repertory of practice exercises and pieces, duets for students to performance together, performance tips, and creative exercises. Unlike other class piano texts, Contemporary Class Piano emphasizes creativity over rote learning and covers the full range of basic to advanced skills, eliminating the need to buy additional texts. Acclaimed for its creative approach and diverse repertoire, Contemporary Class Piano provides a student-friendly introduction to basic piano skills. In short, progressive chapters that mirror the standard two-semester curriculum, it explains the essential elements of piano playing, incorporating diagrams, practice exercises, and musical examples that help students build proficiency and confidence with a variety of chord patterns, major and minor scales, and accompaniments. Because most class piano students aspire to be music teachers, the emphasis is on developing functional skills that they will need to master in order to play the piano in their classrooms"--
